Mazda’s smallest sport utility vehicle, the new CX-3, is a nimble five-seater with fresh styling, an affordable starting price, generous standard equipment and noteworthy fuel economy.Available with front- or all-wheel drive, the 2016 CX-3 has a starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $20,840, including destination charge. That’s $1,835 less than Mazda’s larger CX-5 SUV and makes the CX-3 competitive with the starting retail prices of other small SUVs, such as the Chevrolet Trax, Nissan Juke and Honda HR-V.FILE – In this Nov. 19, 2014 file photo, the 2016 Mazda CX-3 is unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show, in Los Angeles. The new-for-2016 CX-3, Mazdas smallest sport utility vehicle, is a nimble-handling five seater with fresh styling, affordable starting price, generous standard equipment and noteworthy fuel economy. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong)Better yet, the CX-3 with front-wheel drive is rated by the federal government as high as 29 miles per gallon in city driving and 35 mpg on highways — good enough to share the top spot with the Honda HR-V for combined fuel mileage among new gas-powered, non-hybrid SUVs in the United States. The mileage rating also beats the 2015 Toyota Camry sedan, which has 25/35 mpg.A surprising number of features and equipment come standard, even on the lowest-priced CX-3: rearview camera, keyless remote entry, push-button ignition, infotainment system with voice control and 7-inch color touchscreen display, tilt and telescoping steering wheel and Bluetooth for audio and hands-free phone connectivity.Every CX-3 also comes with a six-speed automatic transmission and a 146-horsepower, non-turbo four-cylinder engine that can deliver spunky performance in many situations, due to the direct injection and the compact SUV’s light weight.The top-of-the-line Grand Touring models, while nicely equipped with a moonroof, leather seats and other things, start at more than $25,800, rivaling pricing for roomier SUVs. The test Grand Touring model with all-wheel drive and optional safety equipment package approached $30,000.Cargo space behind the second-row seats in the CX-3 totals only 12.4 cubic feet, which is less capacity than the trunks of some compact cars, and the floor sits high. However, cargo space can be maximized to 44.5 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down.The CX-3’s styling has side body metal swooping upward toward the back of the SUV, so the rear-door windows can seem a bit small for those in the back seat. Legroom back there is 35 inches (compared with 41.7 inches in the front), and three adults sit snugly across the back bench.Overall, the CX-3 is a nice blend of Mazda’s character and small-car history and the ride height and flexibility expected of an SUV. At just 14 feet long, the CX-3 slips easily into curbside parking spaces.The Grand Touring test model got up to speed and merged with traffic well but could get noisy when pressed hard to accelerate on mountain roads. A sportier response can be attained by pressing the “sport” mode button, which adjusts gear shifts for quicker power response.The 2-liter four-cylinder engine delivers peak torque of 146 foot-pounds at a decent 2,800 rpm. Electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering responded well, and the vehicle’s ride tended to the firm side, rather than cushioned. Road noise from the test SUV’s 18-inch all-season tires two sizes bigger than the base 16-inchers, intruded when the vehicle was on rough pavement but was otherwise normal.Achieving the government’s fuel economy numbers appears to be realistic. The test all-wheel drive CX-3 averaged 28.7 mpg, which is close to the 29-mpg combined city/highway rating for this model. This translated into a 341-mile travel range on a single 11.9-gallon tank; front-drive CX-3s have a slightly larger tank that can hold 12.7 gallons.
The Gautrain on the test track atBombardier’s manufacturing facilityin Derby, UK. (Image: Gautrain) A Gautrain coach on the assembly line.(Image: Gautrain)Janine ErasmusThe first Gautrain cars have been presented at the Bombardier Transportation production facility in Derby, UK. Gauteng Premier Mbhazima Shilowa was at the launch in July 2008 to accept the first set of four cars. Each set will have the carrying capacity of 321 seated and 138 standing passengers, and with 24 trains of four cars each on order, the Gautrain will be able to transport more than 100 000 passengers per day in each direction.“With uncompromising levels of safety, security, comfort and punctuality, passengers can look forward to unprecedented standards of service,” said Shilowa.Bombardier Transportation, a subsidiary of Canada-based Bombardier Inc. which manufactures the Learjet range, has been contracted by the Gauteng provincial government to design the core electrical and mechanical systems for the much talked-about rapid rail system that will carry passengers between Johannesburg and Pretoria in 40 minutes. Bombardier’s responsibilities will include communications, automatic fare collection, and power supply and distribution systems.The company, a specialist in rail transport systems with over 100 000 vehicles in operation worldwide, will also build 96 Electrostar cars and provide training as well as 15 years of maintenance services. The last car is due for delivery in June 2010.Bombardier’s award-winning Electrostar design is known for its reliability, cutting-edge technology and energy efficiency. The shells are manufactured from aluminium, making them lightweight and cheaper to maintain. The cars on the airport route will undergo special customisation to allow for more luxurious seats and dedicated storage areas for luggage.Bombardier Transportation is part of the Bombela consortium, which is responsible for the financing, design and construction, and operation and maintenance of the 80km-long Gautrain route. Other members of the consortium are French civil contractor Bouygues, South African civil contractor Murray and Roberts and empowerment partner Strategic Partners Group.Empowering the provinceOnly 15 cars will be completed at the Derby Bombardier facility. Although Bombardier will still manufacture body shells for the remaining 81 cars, these will be shipped to Union Carriage and Wagon in Nigel, Gauteng, to be completed there. A number of teams from Union Carriage are currently in Derby to receive training in the final assembly of the cars.Bombardier has audited the Union Carriage factory and will invest, at its own cost, a substantial sum to upgrade the facility to meet the requirements for Gautrain rolling stock assembly.“Not only will skills be transferred to our local people, but more jobs will be created in our commitment to the socio-economic development of the Gauteng province,” said Jack van der Merwe, CEO of the Gautrain Management Agency.“The local recruitment and training of drivers will also take place in Derby as Electrostar driver compartments and control systems are more advanced than other trains presently running in South Africa.”Van der Merwe added that the Gautrain Management Agency was “seriously considering enlarging the order”.“We are proud to be part of the South African government’s commitment to build a modern and effective rail network,” said Bombardier president André Navarri, “and are confident that its new fleet will facilitate the easy movement of people and goods throughout the region.”Do you have queries or comments about this article?

A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… To celebrate the first birthday of YouTube Live yesterday, Google announced that video creators can now monetize live events streaming on YouTube, either with ads or paid streaming. YouTube also made the Wirecast software free for partners, giving stream hosts the ability to do professional-quality live production. Television networks should be worried – but only if Google can work its way into the living room.YouTube has already demonstrated its potential to eclipse TV. In January, it hosted a live Google+ Hangout with President Obama and five everyday people. The social aspect added a degree of interactivity that television can’t easily provide. Plus, it’s much easier to attract attention to a live event when the channel itself can be shared directly on social networks. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Google#web#YouTube jon mitchell When prerecorded videos are included, YouTube’s eclipse of television is no exaggeration. YouTube serves more than 4 billion videos every day. It has double the daily prime-time audience of all three major U.S. television networks combined. The viewers are watching millions of different videos rather than the same few shows, but that’s telling. There’s a vastly bigger viewing audience online, where viewers control the programming.The Missing PieceYouTube has a massive opportunity to disrupt TV, but it has one critical obstacle: It’s not in people’s living rooms. Just about all smart TV boxes can view YouTube videos from the Web, but that’s not the same as a full-fledged YouTube app that includes this new kind of live programming. Google updated the YouTube app for Google TV in February to bring YouTube’s new channel-based redesign to the set-top box. YouTube’s new channels let users organize their own favorite topics and subscribe to publisher channels. As live YouTube programming takes off, this could transform the way we watch video.The problem is that Google TV boxes are failing to fly. Google CEO Eric Schmidt promised that “by the summer of 2012, the majority of televisions you see in stores will have Google TV embedded in it.” Time is running out on that promise. Google has tested the pay-per-view option with publishers like Ultimate Fighting Championship, but now all YouTube Live publishers in Canada, Japan, France, the U.S. and the U.K. have the option.Much like Google+ Hangouts On Air, YouTube Live is still only available to select partners. These live, streaming video services place massive demands on Google’s infrastructure, and they have to be scaled up carefully. But the idea that anyone can produce a professional-quality live video stream is astonishing, even in beta. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market

The Rural Electrification Programme (REP) has been mandated to work with the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPSCo), in its drive to reduce electricity theft, by introducing solar systems.Minister of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Hon. Phillip Paulwell, says this initiative is in tandem with other theft reduction efforts, such as regularizing supplies to communities.Mr. Paulwell was speaking at the opening ceremony for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Analysis and Investigation for Low Emission (AILEG) project symposium, held at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, on Tuesday, July 9.The Minister added that the REP has also been mandated to complete its target of providing electricity to 100 per cent of rural areas. “Those three per cent that now remain are in areas that are so far from the grid, it is too expensive (to provide), and we are going to be deploying photovoltaic systems in these areas,” he explained.Meanwhile, Mr. Paulwell challenged the private sector to establish facilities to manufacture solar panels. “There is no reason why we should not be moving to establish an industry, whether assembling or manufacturing solar panels, not just for Jamaica, but for the entire Caribbean. Energy is big business,” he stated.On the matter of climate change, Mr. Paulwell said Jamaica must prepare for, and mitigate its effects, which he described as “very real.”“Just as storms and hurricanes affect every single facet of our lives, so too will the effects of climate change, if we are not prepared,” he emphasized, noting that the Government has been making bold steps to deal with climate change, particularly with the addition of the Climate Change portfolio to the Water, Land and Environment Ministry.He pointed out that already, that Ministry was establishing a climate change division, which has set up a Climate Change Committee to enhance co-ordination among stakeholders, and to advise the Government on matters related to climate change.Mr. Paulwell further outlined that in his Ministry, the final National Energy Action Plan will guide the implementation of the National Energy Policy, and focus on achieving benchmarks.The two-day forum aims to build the capabilities of the government and other stakeholders to analyze low emission situations, and integrating them into economic development, strategic planning, and implementation.Issues being discussed at the symposium include: low emission growth for development; analysis and investment for low emission growth; low emission development strategy in the Jamaican context; requirements for low emission considerations in national planning; and the status and way forward for policy, programming, planning and financing for climate change.Contact: Alphea Saunders
More than 1,000 country music industry leaders gathered in Memphis Jan. 16-19 to kick off the 25th anniversary of the Country Cares for St. Jude Kids program to support the lifesaving work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.Kellie Pickler poses with St. Jude patient Parker during the Country Cares for St. Jude Kids Seminar. The seminar event, one of the largest country music industry gatherings in the nation, provided St. Jude patients the opportunity to interact with some of their favorite country music artists and celebrates radio partners who together have raised national awareness and more than $500 million to help St. Jude fight childhood cancer and other deadly diseases over the past quarter century.Country artist and Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale and St. Jude patient Tyler played board games during the Country Cares Seminar. During the weekend, which provides tips and tools to country music radio stations from around the country to help raise awareness of St. Jude among their listeners, attendees also got to experience the miracle of St. Jude through inspirational stories from patient families, doctors and researchers. Additionally, participants enjoyed special musical and seminar appearances by country artists, including Brantley Gilbert, Sara Evans, Rodney Atkins, Scotty McCreery and Rascal Flatts.Country Music artist Sara Evans brightened the day of St. Jude patient Chance. The Country Cares for St. Jude Kids program began in 1989, after Randy Owen, lead singer of the music group Alabama, met St. Jude founder Danny Thomas. Owen asked his fellow country music artists, radio stations and loyal country music listeners to help support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude. Since its inception, Country Cares has become one of the most successful radio fundraising events in the nation.“It’s inspiring to think about the major impact the country music industry has had on St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and I am so grateful to all of the men and women in country radio and fellow artists and friends in the country music industry who lend their support for this organization that I hold so dearly,” said Owen. “The turnout for this event is further evidence of the country music industry’s continued commitment and support of the research, treatments and cures provided by this amazing place that has saved the lives of countless children from around the world.”Tennessee native Jessica, who when she was a child was among those who shared their St. Jude stories with radiothon listeners, made a very personal presentation during this year’s anniversary seminar — through treatment at St. Jude in the late 1990s Jessica made a full recovery and today works as a fundraiser for St. Jude. She is one of countless patients that support by the country music industry has helped.“St. Jude is incredibly thankful to Randy Owen, the country music industry, its fans and its listeners for embracing our lifesaving mission over the past 25 years,” said Richard Shadyac Jr., CEO of ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “Through the Country Cares for St. Jude Kids program, the country music industry has raised more money for St. Jude than any other fundraising campaign in the hospital’s history and is playing a significant role in helping some of the world’s sickest children.”Outside the Country Cares program, the industry supports St. Jude in a variety of ways, including hospital visits from chart-topping artists such as the Zac Brown Band and Sheryl Crow and the annual St. Jude Country Music Marathon in Nashville. There also is the No Shave November campaign, which began as a light-hearted wager among co-workers at Warner Music Nashville but that has grown into an annual event engaging Music Row, country radio and others, recently raising more than $215,000 for the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital; as well as the Darius Rucker and Friends Concert, St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends and more.To learn more about Country Cares for St. Jude Kids visit www.countrycares.org.Source:Multivu.com
